Abstract
In addition to the neurotoxic effects, hexachlorophene was found to be a very potent uncoupler of oxidative phosphorylation. This effect was responsible for the body temperature elevation that these authors observed in rats poisoned with hexachlorophene, as well as for the pronounced rigor mortis and rapid onset of rigor mortis when rats that have been given hexachlorophene were sacrificed.
